Sword in the Stone Snowglobe - breaking news

Our friend Sergio from Brazil writes in with the revelation that the above globe currently available at DisneyShopping.com and the Disney UK site is a limited edition of 600. He recieved his and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity that is individually numbered just like the Snow White and Bedknobs and Broomsticks ones. Nowhere on either site, did Disney reveal that this was a limited edition.
This , of course, raises some questions:
  • Why on earth would Disney not state that it was a limited edition?
  • Are there other globes currently for sale that are limited editions?

Sergio also reports that the Fantasia globe does not play "The Sorceror's Apprentice" and that the Hercules globes plays "Go the Distance" not "Zero to Hero" as the Disney site claims. These may be isolated cases but it seems unlikely he would recieve two different globes playing the wrong music.

Thanks Sergio

Thanks for posting my comments, Rob!
I was wondering if the Sleeping Beauty and the Villain snowglobes, which were sold at Disney UK and DisneyShopping.com were also LE and had the same box design. Does anybody know?

This snowglobe had a limited edition, special box and certificate of authenticity, as I imagined:

It's the Villains snowglobe with Maleficent as a dragon.
